Prosecutors plan to file misdemeanor DUI charges against Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey in connection with an incident in which he was pulled over on the Bay Bridge last month.
Heyward-Bey was arrested at about 2 a.m. on April 7 while driving east on the lower deck of the Bay Bridge, California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Tony Tam said.
He was driving a 2012 Range Rover and was observed traveling slightly above the speed limit and weaving, Tam said.
An officer pulled Heyward-Bey over and arrested him on suspicion of DUI after he submitted to a chemical test, Tam said.
He was “cooperative,” and was cited and later released, Tam said.
